    Ooh, me too. My e-ring’s matching band is a full eternity. Engagement Ring is basically an eternity though, with a small sizing bar underneath in the middle, but I’ve only had it for a week so I can’t really say much about the whole experience! Interested to see what everyone says..

    I chose an eternity, but not channel set.  I’ve always loved eternity’s and I especially love how it looks from underneath.  I’ve heard from some people though, depending on how you have it set that it can be uncomfortable in between your fingers.  Mine lays pretty flat so i don’t have to worry about that, but I love the look of an eternity.

    I’m backwards.  When we were shopping for the band I was dead set against an eternity, and so I got a 1/2 eternity to match where my e-ring channel starts and stops.  But it spins like crazy and I really regret not getting an eternity.  If I could do it over, I’d 100% get the full eternity.

    I would recommend having an “almost” eternity… one that just has a very small bar with no diamonds at the bottom, which will mean it won’t show when it spins and you still have the option of having it resized and protecting the diamonds right at the bottom of the band

    I love my eternity band. I notice it does spin quite a bit (especially after washing my hands when water gets underneath), so I’m glad it’s eternity and you can’t tell. The diamonds in mine are bezel set, so they are pretty protected and shouldn’t get damaged very easily. Also, because they’re bezel set they lay pretty flat on my finger, so the ring isn’t uncomfortable between my fingers.

    I have a full eternity band with channel set diamonds. I love it–don’t have to worry about spinning and no matter which way it turns, it sparkles ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t noticed any damage on the palm side of my hand, but you do have to be aware that they’re there–no lifting weights while wearing it or any other activities that would bang against the stones. But that’s pretty much common sense.

    i absolutely love my eternity band, and have not once regretted my decision to get it. it’s not channel set, but in a u-prong setting.  the diamonds are set pretty low, so it’s not uncomfortable at all and i usually don’t even feel it.  i don’t have any pics of the underside, but here are two profile pics that might help.

    My wedding band, which I inherited from my grandmother, is a channel-set eternity band.  Unfortunately, I’m not married yet, so I can’t tell you my experience with it.  But here’s a pic, just because I love it that much. ๐Ÿ˜‰
